John Thompson’s Trusting won the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes at Warwick Farm last Saturday September 3, 2011.
It was the first win in two years for the five-year-old Trusting, who won the Group 2 Warwick Stakes as a three-year-old.
Chris Waller’s My Kingdom Of Fife finished close in second, while Strike The Stars ran home for third.
Trusting was ridden by Singapore sensation jockey Joao Moreira, who was riding in Sydney for the first time.
“We had no luck in the last race and didn’t have much in this race either but Joe managed to get him up and I would like to thank all the team, they have done a great job with this horse,” Thompson said.
“He has got all the ability in the world, I was only saying to Nathan’s (Tinkler) sister yesterday that when he goes to stud I am going to buy a mare myself to send to him because he is just a beautiful horse; he is very much a stallion and it is hard to coax it out of him when his mind isn’t on the job.
“As everyone who has ridden him has said, one day he will jump, the next day he will be standing still but hopefully he keeps rolling on.”
Moreira expressed his thanks to Trusting’s owners and trainer for offering him the winning ride.
“He didn’t jump well from the barriers so I had to work on him but once I got to the top of the straight I (got) a clear run and he just flew home to get a very nice win,” Moreira said.
“I would like to thank to the owner and trainer for getting me here, I am just so happy to be here”.
